with the commerce you might talk about the range of $50 billion. but in fact, the number is much smaller roads and bridges. but it seems that is all we talk about something the government does less off -- less of more of a grandiose scheme. >> because then we have a heartwarming stories that is one small productive part it was about one out of 1,000 shots of a productive use to think a fraction of the money going to the intended purpose. one hell of a price to pay. >> legislating to the one out of 1,000. you can provide for who has a pre-existing condition. there are better ways out there. but to interfere with their buddies consumption or insurance plan with the insurance mandate, you have to have the particular kind. to do that it seems it is the world turned upside down neil: thank you. our editor from washington. >> his crime from north america. >> of the crisis that is a crisis for us. copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, adv
gravitas behind it. and there's hope the worldwide commerce will pick up. that's how federal expressi can levitate to where it was. taking en masse, and those are en masse hope stocks, these groups are but a small percentage of the entire u.s. stock market that's rally. that's what matters to me. this is what brings me to the real takeaway. i think this rally is not about hope. i think it's about cold, hard facts and believe it or not the facts for many sectors are really pretty darn good. so let's get to those. first, this is a rally about cds, certificates of deposit. the returns you're getting on these are reminiscent of what a checking account used to offer you versus a savings account in the old days the disparity was so great that you would do anything to keep money out of your checking account. now many people are willing to accept these ridiculous rates for their savings accounts. plus people own bond funds that could get hammered if rates eventually go up. how can they do this in good conscience? but some folks aren't. some folks really get it. some are buying dividend paying sto
are late commerce to the real obama that we can't afford this in the future. and this, i think, is what the romney campaign really needs to stitch together, that it's his radical past, plus his disastrous present, that is going to usher in, if the people make the wrong decision, a more pair list, bankrupt and unsafe future. >> but look at the last two weeks how things have gone down. you have everything that happened benghazi, and finally now they admit it was a terrorist attack. before they would tell you anything but, just like fort hood was an employment situation. and 15 million more on food stamps, 49 million total. you say he's the food stamp president and you are called a racist. how do you deal with the media, and then they focus on the romney tape, which we now find out has missing minutes. how does he, romney, overcome what is an obvious media bias? >> well, i'll tell you how you don't deal with it. you don't listen to these beltway and manhattan chin pullers, these republican strategists who we should remind people of four years ago were all on the obama bandwagon and now pre
the commerce department and what it showed was that the median price of a newly constructed home is at $257,000. that's a jump up 11% from july to august. now, a few reasons for these higher prices. less of a supply of homes on the market and that means more people are going after fewer properties. plus, mortgage rates are at record lows. that's a real good incentive to get people out there to buy. also, an increasing number of buyers. they just haven't been able to find previously owned homes that they like, they are opting to go brand-new and those are traditionally more expensive. victor? >> good news for the housing market. what impact did this have on the overall economic outlook? >> no doubt about it. housing is really a critical component and manufacturing is what pulled us out of the recession and economists, they want to see them pass the baton. that's really important for consumer spending because when people feel like their home is worth more, they feel wealthier and they tend to spend more and that's something our economy needs. a direct correlation with the job's market. people
angeles where romney spoke to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. jim, today it looks like romney is reaching out to latino voters. >> reporter: that's right, joe. he's doing just that. but he's also according to his campaign unveiling some of the details of his economic plan. just as voters are starting to pay attention to this election. but there are new distractions out there. namely a campaign blame game that does not go over well 50 days before an election. after a week of gop handwringing over his response to violence in the middle east, mitt romney is rebooting his message, returning to the issue that has driven his campaign from the beginning. the economy. >> it's time for a president who's committed to cutting spending and balancing the budget. and i know how to do that. we balanced the bajt budget in my company and in the olympics. >> reporter: in a speech to the hispanic chamber of commerce, he offered remedies to the deficit he rarely talks about. the retooled approach is backed up with plain language in new ads. >> got to balance the budget. you've got to cut the defi
. and on the big issue, the commerce clause, he kept it as narrow as he could under the circumstances. >> right. most of us and certainly the argument going into the case was all about whether the commerce clause of article one gave congress the right to pass this. >> can you compel people to engage in commerce? >> correct. and roberts said no. which was a tremendous conservative victory. but then he turned the corner and he said, well, congress also has the power to tax and this was a legitimate tax under that part of the power. >> this move obviously a brilliant political move on the court. is roberts as good as anybody you've seen over the past let's say quarter century, 30, 40 years politically in working of the court? >> better. >> better than anybody. >> he's brilliant. >> and a better writer. you know, i think the best writer in the history of the supreme court was robert jackson, who served in the '40s and '50s, fascinating, brilliant guy. john roberts is an elegant, beautiful stylist, which is the exception rather than the trial supreme court. he's remarkable man. >> so john roberts pr

[ applause ] of course, the return of our troops cannot and must not be used as an excuse to hollow out our military through devastating defense budget cuts. it is true that our armed forces have been stretched to the brink, and that's all the more reason to repair and rebuild. we can always find places to end waste, but we can't cancel program after program. we cannot jeopardize critical missions and cut corners in the quality of the equipment and training we provide to our men and women in uniform. >> this is a speech
of commerce today. that's part of his effort to try to build a larger -- >> when we come back, we will go to the foreign policy, how the obama white house is handling that. >>> we asked our monday trivia question, like the monday "new york times" cross word, the easy one, which state is the birth play of the most u.s. presidents? of course, virginia, leads the way with eight presidents. washington, jefferson, madison, monroe, harrison, tyler, taylor and then, of course, only one in the 20th century, woodrow do you have a trivia question we should use? e-mail us. we'll be right back. does your phone give you all day battery life ? droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with verizon, america's largest 4g lte network, and motorola, droid does. get $100 off select motorola 4g lte smartphones like the droid razr. like a squirrel stashes nuts, you may be muddling through allergies. try zyrtec® liquid gels. nothing starts working faster than zyrtec® at relieving
hispanic chamber of commerce. you will be seeing that. his schedule has 3:15 p.m. eastern time, that's 12:15 pacific time. make sure you stay tuned. there are a lot of warning lights and sounds vying for your attention. so we invented a warning you can feel. introducing the all-new cadillac xts. available with a patented safety alert seat. when there's danger you might not see, you're warned by a pulse in the seat. it's technology you won't find in a mercedes e-class. the all-new cadillac xts has arrived, and it's bringing the future forward. >>> the boy scouts of america is at the center of a scathing accusations that children are raped and molested and dozens of coverups. the los angeles times got ahold of confidential files known as the per version files. let's go to straight to one of the l.a. times reporters digging into the story. jason phelps joins us now on the phone. jason, this is just astounding to hear the headline on this. first of all, what is in these files and how are these kept quiet for so long? >> the boy scouts of america has been keeping per version files for almost 1
chamber of commerce in l.a. about how latinos are hurt by the economy. in part of that speech he's saying while national unemployment is 18.1%, hispanic unemployment is over 10%. but the obama camp is firing back with an ad that suggests romney is making a grab at something he cannot reach. >> romney only has a few short weeks to overhaul his positions and slow his declining popularity with latino voters. can he cover up his belief in self-deportation with a bold, new wallpaper choice? >> nbc news senior political editor mark murray is here to give us insight to this important voting bloc and we'll continue to walk it in the next 50 days here. mitt romney has the issue of self-deportation. a pretty tricky needle for him to thread, isn't if? >> it's really tough because mitt romney went so hard to the right during the republican primary process. during that republican primary season, mitt romney went after rick perry and newt gingrich for being too liberal when it came to illegal immigration. all of a sudden now that we're in the general election, mitt romney is trying to pivot back to the
event, a speech to the hispanic chamber of commerce in california. that was it. on tuesday, his two events were both fund-raisers. they were closed to the public and those were in the great swing state of utah, followed by the great swing state of texas. okay, this is not what it looks like to campaign for president. these are not swing states. republican senator lindsey graham told reporters of mitt romney today, "he's a great guy, he should win this election, but being in utah is necessary to raise money, but he doesn't have to be there, in my view." senator graham continued, "i think what romney needs to do is get into virginia and run for sheriff. this is not rocket science." real clear politics covered mr. romney's mysteriously light schedule yesterday. they quoted a well-connected republican fund-raiser saying, "there's not really a campaign here. he's getting ready for the debates and he's out fund-raising. you've got enough money." real clear politics also notes that in the 19 days following the conclusion of the republican convention, mr. romney spent only 9 of those 19 day
taxes. paul ryan, mitt romney's running mate in 2010 at the chamber of commerce said this about the cayman islands. let's hear it. >> we don't want to have a situation where we're penalizing businesses for keeping their money, their capital and headquarters and manufacturing facilities in america. so then rather than having ireland and the kay maine islands be the place you hide your money, why don't we make it america? >> ryan is making part of a larger argument bringing money back to the u.s., but the place you hide your money, the cayman islands, the place mitt romney hides his money, setting aside the tax rate question, the loaded words, swiss bank accounts, cayman islands, and mitt romney all in one sentence together. >> it's hard to know where to start here. we actually know a lot about romney's money and where he puts it for tax purposes. and what we know about that is he puts it in places where people go to cheat. where they go to hide their money for tax purposes, swiss bank accounts, cayman islands, luxembourg one of the most notorious tax avens. we know why he's not r

. >> the irony is that earlier in the day he'd been talking to the hispanic chamber of commerce and he highlighted in his speech to the hispanic chamber of commerce the direly high unemployment figures for latinos and makes a joke if only i were latino i'd be doing better than i'm doing. at the very least, bad idea? >> it's a joke. he's used it before. he did on univision, where they were laughing and talking about, hey, you were born in, you know, your folks were born in mexico. so could you claim this? and so it's kind of a joke that's been going back and forth. but the key is, you look at barack obama, black americans are extremely proud to have him as president of the united states. one of their own, if you like. and they vote overwhelmingly, 90-some percent. and so the idea is, hey, maybe i could get a higher percentage of hispanics if i could claim that. and it's a joke. that's it. we all should be laughing and not be too concerned about this. >> you know, there was a while back in the beginning of the campaign in the primary process when i did an interview with mitt romney and w
of the indexes. you see bank of ireland up there and unicredit, commerce bank. >> yes, we do take some collective long positions. for example in italy where we see economy be more solid than in spain and not suffering from what spanish banks are exceeding. today the imf is supporting plan of investment from the esm into irish banks that would lighten up irish debt. there is a combination of bad policies aimeded a repping the regions and banks which are very large problems and structural problems in the economy like very high unemployment. so already a very bad macro situation, on top of that the government is persisting into policy stakes that haven't worked before. >> so selective risks. how about the noneurozone. banks. >> we've always been very positive because there's a better independent policy, many of these countries are a safe haven from the european crisis. on the other hand, the up side has become lower and lower has safe havens have become more popular. so the bonds from these banks now trade at half the extra spread than bonds in the semicore eurozone countries like france or the peri
enjoy. new signs the housing market is recovering, and in about 30 minutes the u.s. commerce department releases new numbers for august home sales. analysts are expecting sales to increase by 380,000 homes. that's up from july when sales increased by 372,000 homes. so should we all be dancing in the streets? our business guru christine romans is here to tell us. hi, kristine. >> good morning, carol. so nice to put one or two or three months of good housing news back to back and report it to you. at 10:00 we'll get the new home sales, and you just give the forecasts. why new home sales are so important because a new house means construction workers, it means people pouring concrete, truck drivers. it means people making the windows and the material to go into it, and then it means couches and carpeting and all of the things that come with buying the furnishings for a new home. so every new home is a little economic driver incredibly important. existing homes, the used homes we buy and sell, that's the bulk of all home sales, those have been showing signs of life, too, carol. for three mo
trade commission, when the department of commerce, when the white house, when the congress stands up, when we all stand up it makes a huge difference and the relationship will settle in in a way a bit more advantageous to the united states of america and to our manufacturing companies, the smaller ones especially, and the workers in this country. >> that's in some ways what you're saying, joe. it sounds like whatever is happening, it's working in terms of the appreciation of the chinese currency. quickly, ro. >> but i don't think it's let china appreciate the currency to the extent they want. it's having them have an exchange rate that's to the market and let's not forget, this is hurting people in china. it's hurting the consumers there at the expense of elite exporters. so if you care about human rights, if you care about being progressive, you ought to care about the chinese currency. >> i guess a real quick point. the brazilian finance minister this week attacked our federal reserve for decreasing the value of the dollar and he used this term currency wars which everyone has glom
to the hispanic commune like he's going to the chamber of commerce and mac a case that his policies will be better for hispanics. >> i'd say you have to good out to latino commune and apologize. of all the stuff he said, this to me is the most offensive. first of all, here's a guy that's worth hundreds of millions of dollars complaining that because he's not of a racial or ethnic minority in this country that he's somehow been treated unfairly. this reinforces the stereotype that a lot of people have that somehow we're giving an unfair advantage to people who are from communities of color. here's a guy who's had all the advantages in the world. >> interesting point. >> hundreds of millions of dollars. what was he thinking to show incredible lack of judgment to do this in front of -- it looks like there are several dozen people in this room. what is this guy thinking? he's run are for president of the united states. >> the good news, it will give us a lot to talk about. margaret hoover, mr. socarides. >>> he'll be join by bay buchanan. >> i think margaret would like to speak on his behalf. can i sp
began the week on monday in l.a. speaking to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. he did a telemundo interview and then this forum yesterday. something he hasn't done until now really, until after he clenched the nomination after he formally became the nominee after the convention. he's also spending a lot of money on hispanic ads lately. so we're seeing a sprint to the finish all out effort by mitt romney in these last 40-some days. it was a very good crowd for him. his people did a great job in packing the house with some of the strongest supporters in south florida. president obama will have a similar crowd today of his strongest supporters. he got some tough questions, john, at the beginning. a real grilling on the immigration issue. but then they moved to the economic and education issues. you could see this was a mitt romney at ease. i could tell that he's been preparing and briefing for debates. this was not a debate format. it was close. he did well. >> you talked about immigration there. one of the reasons that mitt romney is trailing president obama 2-1 among latino voters
and commerce, and that's supporting our alliances, first and foremost, israel. and that's where it needs to be packaged. and i haven't heard a clear articulation on either side about how you begin to put those pieces together in the middle east. we all know it's broken, but at some point, we've got some work ahead in terms of putting the pieces together. >> ambassador jon huntsman, thank you very much. it's great to see you. >> thank you. >> it is great to see you. say hi to everybody. >> will do. >> could he have given obama a run? >> he tried. >> he tried. i mean, you know. you've got to win the nomination first. >> you've got to win the nomination first. >> yeah. >> i tell you what, you know what? he had a difficult launch. >> whatever. i guess it's not good coming from me. >> conservatives by the end of the campaign realized he had the most conservative record. but he just could never connect with the base. >> isn't it about winning? >> it is about winning. >> right. >> i mean, it's only about winning. >> i thought it was. >> it's only about winning. >> until now. >> it's only about
